Recovering Financial Compensation for Psychological Injuries
When you are involved in an accident caused by another person’s negligent actions, you can potentially suffer a number of injuries that may leave you disabled and unable to work. Dealing with these injuries can be very difficult, especially financially. However, not only can you suffer physically from a wide variety of health problems, but you could also suffer from psychological issues due to the accident itself or from having to live with injuries or disabilities.
Like physical injuries, psychological damage may require extensive treatment and even prescription medication to overcome or moderate. This treatment can potentially cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. For more information about how you can recover financial compensation to pay for these expenses, contact an Imperial Beach injury lawyer of Ritter & Associates today at (619) 296-0123 and schedule a free consultation.
Types of Compensation for Psychological Injuries
Any accident, whether a car accident, slip and fall accident, or suffering an injury from a doctor’s negligent actions, can cause physical injuries. They can also cause psychological damage that’s just as detrimental to a person and their family. Fortunately, civil law allows a person to collect compensation for psychological issues resulting from an accident and can cover the following:
- Therapy sessions
- Prescription drug costs
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering from emotional trauma
- Loss of income if you can no longer perform your job
